fincherDavid Fincher announced today that his next project after the Aaron Sorkin scripted Facebook movie The Social Network will be an adaptation of the Max Ehrlich novel The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. Better still he’ll be teaming up with Seven scribe Andrew Kevin Walker and producer Michael De Luca.

It’s been fourteen years since Seven catapulted the dark visions and tight direction of Fincher to an ebullient audience and to have Fincher and his team concentrating on a supernatural thriller is an awesome prospect.

Heat Vision at THR have this synopsis:

“Proud” centers on a college professor who begins having recurring dreams and nightmares and, realizing they are images of a past life, decides to search out the source of the visions. With his girlfriend in tow, he discovers a woman and her grown-up daughter who are keys to his past life.

I’m a huge Fincher fan and was one of the only people I know who loved Benjamin Button, so to have two Fincher projects to look forward to makes me very happy indeed.

No news on casting yet, but we’ll bring you all the news on this one.
